[Plugin: WordPress SEO by Yoast] Feature Request: Apply shortcodes in meta description (3 posts)

    This is a great plugin, but it would be really nice to be able to put shortcodes into the meta description. As of now, any shortcodes placed there never run, and you end up with [shortcode] in the meta description.

    To anyone else that's wanting to run shortcodes in the meta description, here's how you can do it with WordPress SEO.

    Add this to your theme:

    add_filter('wpseo_metadesc', run_short_codes_in_meta_desc, 1337);

    function run_short_codes_in_meta_desc($metadesc)
    return do_shortcode($metadesc);

    Thanks for this great solution, didn't work for me at first but did once I reduced the priority level from 1337 to 100
